This is just awesome, good luck to Josh. No trouble to tell you are one proud papa, and rightly so. I have one daughter that is interested in riding, and will be getting her a bike next spring.

Island Park

I never expected to hear anyone mention Island Park, Idaho...what a small world. My in-laws (the Taylors) have a place there back off of Yale Creek Road. They mentioned riding their quads out to the store with some neighbors on dirt bikes. One of the kids rode on the seat in front of mom. Any chance that was you folks?

Here's hoping everything continues smoothly in your prep for the ISDE.

Sounds great Bryce! Let me know what shirt sizes (you can send e-mail or PM).

And for anyone else local, I did receive confirmation today that Curtis, the main guy who grooms the track is grooming it on Friday before the fundraiser and the entire track will be closed until we open it up Saturday morning for riding.

When he grooms it is like a work of art and will definitely be worth it. The biggest challenge is going to be the heat. It is very hard to keep enough moisture on the track when it is 100 degrees. Pray for some more mild temps and or a good summer thunderstorm :)

Either way, it will all be for a good cause and should be lots of fun.

Neduro. Thanks for the feedback. I absolutely loved your Dakar report and you of all people can appreciate the effort involved in prepping a bike and participating in an International event, while also keeping folks at home updated and informed. Your story was part of our inspiration for doing this.

I hope it's OK to repost this, but yes, we have some options for people to help support Josh:

* Pay Pal Account = joshknightisde@gmail.com This can be used for any cash donations or payment for T-shirts.

* Tugger Lift Strap Sales - All proceeds of Tugger sales specific to Josh's cause are going straight to him. This is a great win/win for everyone and every off-road rider should try these:

http://www.thetugger.com/

* T-shirt sales - see design earlier in thread. $20 for adult and $15 for youth sizes.

* Open MX Practice and ISDE style fund raiser at our local track (flyer posted earlier in thread).

Mike! well done on getting your family involved in the Six Days. Josh is onto something very special that'll set him up for a great life ahead. Listening to his radio interview he seems to have his preparations well sorted.

Josh, you passed your natural selection for the Six days years ago without knowing. Stick to your plan. Stay in your comfort zone and we shall see you after Day 6 with your first ISDE Medal.

Have a great time.

Geoff,

We spent the entire day today, (Saturday July 14, 2012) prepping for Josh’s fundraiser next weekend. We pounded lathe all day and strung several thousand feet of ribbon and I bought another 8,000 feet of ribbon tonight.

You know that feeling when you see a perfectly groomed MX track in the morning ready for race day…..well, seeing a big open field with endless lathe and ribbon creates that same feeling for me too (I’ll never forget seeing my first real ISDE special test laid out….or the first time you see the Idaho City grass track).

We also made great progress on the Endurcross section of the course. Huge thanks to friends Greg Gillian, Charles Rhodes, and Jim Keller (and several others), who spent their whole day out there in the heat and rain helping us. There is still a lot of work to do but we’re getting super excited for next weekend to put on a combined ISDE style event and Open MX practice at the Ogden Cycle Association motocross track.

Our lathe and ribbon is so tiny but trust me when I say there is A LOT of it there. This is the grass track that has a lot of everything. It’s going to be way fun when it starts to get rough and rutted.



Then we went to work on some of the beginning sections of the Endurocross course. It wouldn’t be Endurocross without some big pipes.


First bike over the big bikes was Jim’s 6 year old son on a KTM 50. Nobody can complain about it now.


Small tire jump (haven’t been able to acquire any Loader tires yet).


Slowly starting to take shape.

Wow, awsome thread, sorry Im joining it so late, read the whole thing.
I know what hard work and planning you are faced with, I recently competed in the Tuareg rallye in Morocco and did it the easy way by buying rallye support and renting a fully prepped bike and even then there was a lot of planning, paperwork, training etc. The rewards are great and the preperation is really valuble.
Ill take 7 t-shirts, 4 large and 3 x-large. Ill buy them on your site.
Thanks for the frequent updates, it really keeps it interesting.
Keep it pinned Josh.

Thanks for the feedback and congratulations on your competition in the Tuareg ralley. That's a huge undertaking.

More updates coming tomorrow with some pictures of progress on the Endurocross and ISDE special tests for our fundraiser this weekend. I realize most are too far away to attend, but you can probably appreciate and hopefully enjoy some insight on the preparations.

For a little taste of what is to come at the fundraiser, check out this little promo video Josh made yesterday:

(Unfortunately we don't anticipate rain clouds and mud at the fundraiser, but it will be awesome nonetheless.)

Good timing!!! As I logged on I was wondering if there were any videos of Josh on the new bike in action on the new course, close enough!!! Looks to be a great event and am hoping for a video re-cap at in a week or two!

Go Josh!!!
